Brandon Country Park sign

Located in the vast Thetford Forest, Brandon Country Park lies in the very heart of The Brecks. A wild landscape of dark forests, open heathlands, sandy soils and iconic belts of pine trees are ready to be explored.

Brandon Country Park is just South of Brandon, 5 minutes from the A11 at Elveden, less than 30 minutes from Bury St Edmunds, and under an hour from Norwich, Cambridge and Ipswich.

Brandon Railway Station is 1.5miles (2.4km) away.

Mondays to Fridays £1 for up to 2 hours
£2 all day
Weekends and bank holidays £1.50 for up to 2 hours
£3 all day

We offer discounted parking for Blue Badge holders: £1 all day, or £1.50 all day at weekends and Bank Holidays.
